MAJIS Radial mosaic of the jovian rings at high phase
Mosaicking the 2 ring ansa from 90000 to 230000 km. 3 overlapping cubes of 20 vertical lines performed by the scanner (or S/Cslew if compatible with JANUS). This requires re-pointing between individual cubes.
Pointing: OFF-NADIR, S/C pointing projected ring plane, S/C depointing required for the two ansa

Satellite orientation: Maintaining the horizontal orientation of MAJIS slit, MAJIS scan mode activated for vertical sampling (20 vertical lines) centered on the rings, S/C depointing required for mosaicking each ansa (3 overlapping cubes to perform a radial mosaic of one ansa of the rings with radial distance from 90000 to 230000 km)

Duration: 1200 sec (excluding the S/C repointings)


nadir offset


High phase, eclipse Acquisition at far distance (>8.105 km at closest approach) to mitigate the spikes issue (<1 e- impacts/s) constraining the resolution (IFOV>=120 km before binning) 100 kHz readout mode (lowest RON < 30 e-) Spatial binning and spectral binning x4 Performed at 2 low elevations (0° and <0.2°)
any rule that is used to schedule the observation: repetition rules, continuous (plasma instruments), one-off, every orbit, every day, etc
conditions that make the observation not possible (e.g. thruster firing)
